A DIVAN FULL OF SLEEP.


Serve me this goblet of roses
The glass with two branches
A glass that stands like a tree
And tree of the roses bring.
Serve me this red faultless free.
That grows motionless still.
And beneath like a sea breath
Blue, full of ageing breath.
And the shadow below, a divan new of sleep
and the shadow below, a divan full of sleep.

That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
